The overall layout is symmetrical and presented as a central axis. The Senior Vitality Center is located at the center of the community. Like a solitary drop of water, the site stirs ripples which spread out from its center. Rising, it forms a soft, white cloud that finally transforms into an unbounded roof. The bridge leading to Baifuquan Wetland Park more closely links the architecture to nature. Our designer’s intention is that the architecture will function as a natural language which blends seamlessly with nature and drive the sense of vitality within the elderly community.
